Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering


The field of mechanical? engineering covers two broad areas – the thermal system and the mechanical system. The traditional courses in mechanical engineering that include power plant engineering, industrial plant engineering and machine design are supplemented by new and emerging fields such as renewable energy systems, mechatronics, control system and computer applications.
?
The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering program?? has the following distinctive features: elective courses in the new and emerging technologies; industry immersion or on-the-job training; res??earch project; and a culminating design project. The program also offers new courses such as technopreneurship, design thinking and bio-engineering.
